Hosted by the Mental Health Foundation, Mental Health Awareness Week will take place from 18-24 May 2020. The theme is yet to be announced, so keep your eyes peeled!

In a world that is increasingly opening up to and understanding those with mental health issues, it’s no surprise that Mental Health Awareness Week is now a firmer fixture on calendars around the UK and beyond. It’s organised by the Mental Health Foundation, and focuses on a major issue each and every year.

What happened last year?

The theme in 2019 was Body Image – how we think and feel about our bodies. 

Body image issues can affect all of us at any age. During the week we published new research and campaigned for change.

#BeBodyKind

Research has shown that 16 million people experience a mental health problem each year, explains the MHF, and stress is a key factor in this. As part of its attempts to further open dialogue about mental health, the foundation organised a so-called Curry and Chaat initiative where people got together with friends and enjoyed their company over a curry, whilst raising money for good causes.
